Note: We recommend that you use the latest version of our DPS web services for any new development or when you perform updates to an integration using an older version of our web services. Please review our web services listing to read up on our latest version.
In addition we would be happy to meet with your integration team as you start to integrate, in order to help with the finer points of EAR compliance, SOAP web services, or whatever else it takes to get you integrated quickly.
We'd also like to suggest that additional logic be placed on your side to assist with nuisance hits, which can happen, including some of these possibilities:
- Using a Levenshtein Distance algorithm to help rank matches
- Using an analysis of the number of words involved with a match to help rank matches
- Using a "common word exclusion" system. We provide one, which is available for your use, which will ignore certain common words when doing matches (eg: Inc, Ltd, Pty, LLC, etc.)
- Using a "clearance system" where you can clear hits that occur frequently after doing due dilligence. (for example you do business with "NCR Corporation" and have determined that they are not the "NCR" listed by the GSA and DTO (an alias for "NATIONAL COUNCIL OF RESISTANCE").
